2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle (HBF2014, Friday)
Gusher - lost a lot, hence 1 look. Very pale. Acetone sweetness in aroma. Rather mellow in teh mouth, soft light grains. Clearer glass was almost perfumey, would maybe be worth a 5. Soft breadiness everywhere, but again still acetone. Fairly pleasant hoppy finish given how messed up the start was.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Gusher. Hard to say what this should be. Half poured was nicely golden, the rest like lemonade. In colour, that is. Spices, coriander. Not that bad. Somewhat wit-ish. Easy. Don’t mind this at all, just doesn’t feel like a tripel.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle. Golden color, thin head. Very fruity, spicy aroma. Flavor has white bread, spices, perfumy, yeasty. Not really a triple acc. to me. More like a spice coctail.

Rien de plus qu'une blonde belge. Correct mais sans rien d'exceptionnel. Dommage

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Very sweet in general. Pours a cloudy beer with quite a lot of yeast. Very accessible tripel, though lacks in complexity due to its overall sweetness.
